Mother’s Day: the one day a year where it’s all about the most important woman in your life. If you’re not quite sure how to show your mom you love her in this crazy time, don’t worry. VALLEY has got you covered with ways to make the most of the 24 hours dedicated to all of the amazing mothers around the world!
Breakfast In Bed
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so start her special day off right! Breakfast is also one of the easiest meals to cook or prepare. Remember, sometimes less is more! If you’re not a chef, keep it simple. Simple but delicious recipes include yogurt topped with granola, avocado toast, scrambled eggs, and oatmeal with some fresh fruit!

Become Workout Buddies
We’ve said it once, and we’ll say it again: working out can be fun! If you find the right workout, you’ll actually enjoy burning up a sweat — and who better to do that with than your mom? Go for a long walk (while social distancing, of course), try yoga in the backyard or dance it out with PopSugar’s Mom-Friendly Throwback Dance Party.
DIY At-Home Spa
If your mom wants to relax to the max this Mother’s Day, try creating an at-home spa! Pamper your mom with the best face masks, colorful mani-pedis and a hydrating hair blowout. For more tips on how to create a pro-at-home spa experience, check out Tools for A Spa-Grade Facial.
Set aside time to binge-watch all of your mom’s favorite movies. All you have to do is pick your movie genre and snack of choice — it’s that simple! If you’re stuck on what movie to pick, a few mother-daughter movie classics we recommend are “Freaky Friday,” “Mamma Mia,” and “Mermaids.” Eat a bunch of chocolate, laugh a lot and remind your mom how awesome she is.
You don’t have to be in elementary school for your mom to appreciate your artistic Mother’s Day crafts. Seriously, moms love presents that you make yourself. It shows just how much you care and adds some personality! Try creating an artsy heartfelt card or a DIY ’50 Reasons I Love You’ book.
